Why You Should Consider Getting Botox Injections in Your 30s

Posted by June 19th, 2019 in News

Practitioners have been using Botox injections as a cosmetic treatment for fine lines and wrinkles for a long time—long enough that it’s now regarded as a common non-surgical procedure that you can have during your lunch break. And once associated with rich women in their 40s or 50s, Botox is now a mainstream treatment that even men undergo. In fact, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) estimates that 7 million injection procedures, which include Botox, were performed in 2016 and that number continues to rise.

We’ve all heard the statement, “Prevention is better than cure.” That’s exactly why younger patients are now more conscious about their skincare routines and sun exposure. Furthermore, they are now opting for cosmetic treatments for wrinkles and fine lines, the most popular of which is Botox. But is it safe to get Botox injections in your 30s? How early should you begin?

Many dermatologists and doctors advise patients to treat lines when they begin to stick around at rest. When people smile or frown, it’s normal for lines and wrinkles to appear, usually along the sides of the mouth and eyes or across the forehead. But when you notice that the lines stay visible when your face is relaxed, this is when you should consider getting a Botox treatment. Depending on factors such as skin color, stress, sun exposure, smoking, current health status, and genetic predisposition to wrinkles, these fine lines can appear as early as in one’s late 20s or 30s.

Botox injections temporarily paralyze facial muscles and can drastically soften facial lines and wrinkles like crow’s feet and frown lines. They can even help shape and lift the brow and prevent lines from becoming deeply set on the skin as you age. The results of Botox can last for around three to four months.

What makes Botox so great is that it is a simple, non-invasive procedure that can be performed in 10 minutes. Within days after a few tiny Botox injections, you’ll be able to see a noticeable improvement in moderate to severe facial lines and wrinkles. The procedure is also quick, and no recovery time is required. Most importantly, getting Botox can do wonders for your self-esteem; not only will you feel more confident and less self-conscious, but you’ll also feel more empowered knowing that you took charge of your skin’s youthful look and appearance.
